Thanks, it seems to be installing now. I think I tried to run cygport script
but it didn't seem to do anything and it wasn't immediately obvious
what to do. In any case, applying patches one by one as each build
died seems to have gotten it past that, not sure how well it will run but
that is another issue. The function pointer thing still confuses me.

Essentially   x(NULL,NULL) is written to invoke whatever x points
to. The compile complains however that "x_extra_stuff" is not defined
and indeed "_extra_stuff"  doesn't show up anywhere in project. Rewriting
the line as (*x)(NULL,NULL) got it past the compiler.
